Vintage three-wheelers are considered oddities by some, but you can’t say the same about Canadian mobility company Daymak and its Spiritus electric three-wheeler. The Spiritus is similar in form to the Electra Meccanica Solo with a car-like façade, two doors, and a roof on top of a three-wheeled platform. But whereas Solo reminds us of the face of older Korean cars, the Spiritus is a hotrod with its Darth Vader-ish grin. If you look closer, you’ll see it also has a fiendishly wide single rear wheel, a telltale sign of exhilarating performance.
The Daymak Spiritus is unlike any modern three-wheeler that focuses more on efficiency and range. Daymak claims Spiritus is the fastest three-wheeler in the world, capable of rushing to 60 mph from a dead stop in under two seconds. If you want that, you’ll need to fork over $149,000 for the range-topping Spiritus Ultimae with dual-motor AWD, an 80 kWh battery, and about 298 miles of range. A less frightening prospect is the Daymak Spiritus Deluxe with 186 miles of range and a more reasonable $19,995 base price.
